Reviews for Foodstuffs


This is a mainstay on this street and in this city! Great meat, fish and prepared food department, plus tons of homemade and yummy gourmet finds. Be careful, the bakery case will also pull you in. And can make a lunch out of the samples here!

Gourmet stop on the North Shore for food staples and special-occasion snacks. – In Short
The fresh smells and homemade goodies at this fancy deli and caterer are hard to resist. Locals pop in for imported goods from chips and salsa to fancy olive oils and vinegars, or grab a pastry or a gourmet sandwich like turkey pastrami and Swiss at the deli counter. With spreads ranging from modest cheese trays serving 10 to gourmet dinners for 1,000, Foodstuffs can accommodate small in-home gatherings, corporate affairs and all-out bashes.

Whole Foods, Jr. – I went to Foodstuffs on a Saturday afternoon and the store was bustling with people from all over the neighborhood. I was first struck with how small the store was, but felt welcomed by the attentive, but never overbearing staff. Throughout the store were wonderful samples of their dips, cakes, cookies, and sauces. You could almost make a meal out of trying everything (the sample tables are unmanned, so you don't feel guilty about going back for seconds). My first purchase was a Teryaki-marinated Chilean Sea Bass. I was dissappointed when I got home, not knowing that the fish was already cooked. However, after heating it up in the oven, my wife and I were surprised by its quality and flavor. So whether you are going for a good dip, an appetizer, pre-cooked foods, or quality meats and sandwiches, Foodstuffs is a sure thing.

A little over rated – Although the $9 per pound tuna salad is good, it is $9 per pound. I thought the atmosphere was dated, but they do have a lot of great stuff. The cheeses & pates are interesting.

You can find more interesting & more resonable at Whole Foods, Trader Joes or Sunset.

foodstuffs rules – pricy, but without equal in terms of food quality, variety, and presentation
